RakulPreet Singh is a self-made star. In over just seven years since her Bollywood debut, in the 2014 film “Yaariyan”, she has negotiated well the.uphill task of dealing with the outsider tag, and is today one of the busiest actresses in the Hindi film industry.
The actress attributes her success to her ability to
not be cowed down, or be scared of losing stardom.
“Ultimately it boils down to when people start appreciating your work.
That is all what you work for. That one smile that you
bring on someone’s face or when they come and say
‘we loved that film of yours’. That just makes you
so happy,” said Rakul.
“I am not the kind of person who lives in fear. I
came with nothing and I always see the brighter side
that I got the opportunity where so many people want to do films. I got the opportunity and I’m living my dream!” she adds.
Ask her what is important — script or the character — Rakul replies she operates in the theory of “permutation and combination”.
“For me, what is important is — it is a permutation
Sometimes you choose a film because you love the
story and you want to be a part of the message of the
film or the entire setup of the film itself. Sometimes
you go by your character and the script. Sometimes you go by the actor and director,” Rakul says.
She adds: “It is always the permutation and combination. It is subjective to each film.”
Talking about why she did “SardarKa Grandson”,
Rakul said it was the emotion of the film that decid-
ed it for her.
“It was the emotion of the film. It is such a sweet
film. It talks about the grandson going to any extent to fulfil the grandmother’s wish,” she sums up the gist of her upcoming film, slated to release on Netflix on May 18.
